"In a new Island Records CD called Music from the Galaxies, Italian Astro- physicist and composer Fiorella Terenzi has used the most modern radio-tele- scopes and computers to convert the natural radiation from a galaxy designated UGC6697 into the audible range then add instrumental harmonies. A fascinating their largest efforts yet to scour distant galaxies for intelligence on that end." - Newsweek On-Air Radio
"A landmark release - an uncommon fusion of science and art, astronomy and music, known as Acoustic Astronomy" CNN, "Future Watch": "The source for this sound is a galaxy far, far away. How can we hear music from a galaxy? Well, our interpreter is Italian Astrophysicist Fiorella Terenzi." Dennis Miller: "We are going to jam with the galaxy, folks. Thank God I only did half a tab!"

OMG! I remember sending away to get this LP (probably still have somewhere). Intriged at the time, I probably found out about this thru one of the "No Commercial Potetial" shows here in Boston on WZBC (www.wzbc.org), which is still going strong now some 20 or so years later.ReplyDelete
